Potential Bluebirds v Bluebirds tie snubbed for live TV

BARROW AFC will play Championship leaders Cardiff City at home in a mouthwatering Bluebirds versus Bluebirds FA Cup clash – if they beat Macclesfield Town in the second round.

Have your say

barrow have said people who purchase tickets for the Macclesfield game will be more than a priority than cardiff if we progress. so season ticket holders first, then people with tickets from second round then general public. Thats whats happening..... that may eb a tactic they have used to make more revenue... anyone else made to understand this?

@ Greg Rose,
i dont think any of the 500 or so regular supporters will struggle to get a ticket mate.
whats the capacity, 5000??
it will never get filled, AFC wont beat macclesfield so to dream of playing Cardiff is just a dream,

i think the only chance of filling the ground is to let people in for £1 or somet like that, I'd pay £1 quite happily and not the £14 quid it is now!
i dont mind paying £15 to watch the raiders as they are entertaining.

only the 3rd comment in before a jumpimg on the Bandwagon post. That's the way to attract fans back to Holker St

Hopefully Barrow AFC will see the marketing potential in this? After offering season ticket holders first choice for the The Cardiff game if we get through? It is a 3 stub game including Macclesfield game now? That way we will be guarenteed bigger gates including Macclesfield even if we dare i say it dont go through. It will also give the regulars such as myself and my son more chance of a ticket.

Our owners have re-branded us. This is short term for 1-2 seasons. Not one fan likes this and many protests and things will be organised. We are still known as the bluebirds. Blueebirds!!

Haven't Cardiff been totally re-branded and are now known as the Redbirds?

I just hope if Barrow do win the replay that all the regular supporters this season get tickets for the game instead of the band wagon jumpers

A home tie against Cardiff that will do nicely it is a great incentive lets have a sell out against Macclesfield to get us through to the next round
